What Happens After Graduation? One student's takeaways from AA/AS Alumni Panel

Brandon Thompson – April 8th, 2018

On Friday March 30th, I had the privilege of listening in on a panel of three black alumnae who were involved with the AS program. The panel was mainly a Q&A session where the three women discussed their experiences at UVA and what they do currently. The three women were Elisa Bell, Niya Bates, and Kelsey Watkins. Kelsey is a current UVA Law student. Niya currently works at Monticello as the Public Historian of Slavery and African American Life at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation. Elisa is the Marketing Director of Transurban in Washington D.C.
